We loved seeing Mr & Mrs Lapish getting married. The ceremony and reception were lovely and lots of fun. The best pics we got are here, including plenty of Oscar.

Caroline and I visited Brick Lane, in East London. We weren’t there on market day, so looking forward to a revisit. We loved the graffiti and the vibe of the place. It’s a bit like Camden Town, but more grungy. It’s not as vibrant, but friendly (despite the grunginess of the area!)
